Toyo Named Official Tyre of New ‘Fast and Furious’ Movie
(Akron/Tire Review) Toyo Tire USA Corp. will provide the official tyre “The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift.” The blockbuster movie, “The Fast and The Furious,” and its sequel, “2 Fast 2 Furious,” created a new awareness of the automotive aftermarket, according to Toyo.
Rides in both movies were fitted with Toyo Proxes ultra-high performance tires, and the same tires will make an appearance again in the third sequel, set in the underground world of Japanese drift racing.
Toyo is partnering with Universal Pictures on promotional activities. Directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan, the movie is slated for release on June 16.
“Toyo Tires is proud to be associated with trilogy of ‘The Fast and The Furious’ movies,” said Dana Zamalloa, senior marketing communications manager. “Our company strongly supports the car culture, and this new movie promises to be very exciting with the inclusion of the popular sport of drifting.”
